Charlotte Christie's Chicken Chow Mein...

I finally broke down and got my mother's recipe for Chicken Chow Mein from my sister Susan. I haven't had it in... well... since the last time my mother cooked it. I'm sorely missing the taste of her foods -- and this is one of them. I'll be making this recipe this coming weekend for the housemates. Nancy was already kind enough to get all the extra ingrediants for it so I can make it, though the alterior motive is I'm cooking instead of her :P

Chicken Chow Mein

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts – cut into bite sized pieces
3 eggs
pinch of pepper
pinch of sugar
1 tsp light soy sauce
3-5 tbsp corn starch
Sesame oil
1 medium onion, chopped
4 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 lb egg noodles
3 cups water

Advance Preparation:

Combine egg, pepper, sugar, soy sauce and chicken breast, let sit 30 minutes. For better taste/results, let sit overnight and cook next day in marinade.

Preparation:

Use sesame oil to lightly coat pan or wok. Cook onion and garlic together until done. Add contents of marinade and chicken to onions and garlic, and add a splash of soy sauce to mixture as cooking. Cook chicken until done. To create the gravy, add 3 cups of water and 3 tbsp – 5 tbsp of cornstarch, depending on desired thickness, and additional soy sauce to taste. Continue to stir mixture, adding any additional soy sauce as needed, until desired gravy thickness is achieved. Serve over egg noodles.
